The Kansas Supreme Court has discovered a right to abortion in the state’s constitution in a decision striking down a ban on a brutal second-trimester abortion technique.

Two swing state Democrat governors have chosen to stand for late-term abortion and infanticide in Easter week. If Republicans are smart, they will hammer them on it. First was North Carolina Gov.

It was bound to happen. Abortion supporters have made babies fair game for nearly half of a century — the original disposal of the unwanted, the burdensome, the parasite, the financial headache. For the last 46 years, the rights of the unborn have been whittled away, until, as we’ve seen recently, the most heinous expansion […]


For the first time in a long time, Democrat candidates for president are being seriously challenged — by both sides — about their positions on abortion.
